As an artist, Christopher Ganz feels torn between two worlds and ways of thinking.
His drawings and prints often reflect the changes that need to be made in society, such as evening the balance of power between the haves and the have-nots. At the same time, he relies on the powerful and wealthy to buy his work so he can survive as an artist.
Ganz tackles the difficult questions that stem from those issues in his latest exhibition, “Multiplicities: Drawings and Prints by Christopher Ganz,” now showing at Franklin College. The Fort Wayne-based artist uses stark images and bombastic shading in his work to drive home his feelings of being stuck between his duty to society and his struggles as an artist.
